The Insula’s Interoceptive Role In Scoliosis Development Interoception, that sense of how we feel in our bodies is processed in the insula

Since my article on the emotional fascia and its implications in the development of scoliosis,  I wanted to know how the fascia connects to the brain and which part of it. On researching,  I learned that the insular cortex or insula could play a big role in how we process our feelings – good and […]

Don’t Ignore Your Face When Trying To Correct Scoliosis Facial asymmetry is strongly corelated with idiopathic scoliosis

My face is not symmetrical. Repressing my painful feelings froze the right facial muscles into an asymmetrical distortion. This led to the development of scoliosis, and not the other way round. I find it irritating when scoliosis is cited as the cause of some malformation rather than that distortion causing scoliosis. However, as the traumatic […]

Connection Between Scoliosis and the Pineal Gland (Third Eye) The pineal gland is our inner fulcrum, connecting the mind-body-spirit

  Recently, a fellow scoliosis warrior wrote that her doctor told her that scoliosis is due to a malfunction of the pineal gland. That got me digging about the pineal gland’s connection to scoliosis. According to some theories, the pineal gland (third eye) could be a contributing factor in causing idiopathic scoliosis. To prove this […]

Scoliosis Is More Than Just A Spine Curved Sideways Spinal misalignments affects the proper functioning of our body and mind

Most normal people with straight spines are clueless about scoliosis. They see it just as a physical deformity, well like having polio. Scoliosis is more than just a  spine curved sideways.

Journeying Into The Unknown World Of Idiopathic Scoliosis Like Joseph Campbell's Hero, I went on a journey to find a cure for scoliosis

I have been living with idiopathic scoliosis for nearly 40 years. It probably began soon after my mother died when I was 11 years. Though, the effects only showed up 2 years later. Not surprising, considering the trauma I had to deal with besides the loss of my mother. It was trauma over trauma, that […]

Healing Scoliosis: Oral De-Armoring To Release The Primal Scream Reliving our repressed primal pain helps release our oral armor thus healing scoliosis

I have written two posts on armoring, first as protective body armor against sexual molestation. The second post,  ocular armor – our first line of defense. We psychically shut our eyes to the unbearable reality in our abusive environments. Furthermore, Wilhelm Reich, the founder of armoring theory stated that our body can be delineated into […]

Scoliosis – Your Protective Body Armor Armoring is your body's response to stress and danger in the environment

The theory of armoring was introduced by Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich which was further developed by Alexander Lowen. According to Reich, psycho-emotional conflicts which are suppressed end up being locked up in the muscular tissue of the body, forming what he called body armor. This body armor becomes a protective muscular shell. It not only […]

Scoliosis – Fear, Shame And Your Tight Spinal Cord Emotions of fear and shame cause tightness in our bodies mainly our spines causing scoliosis

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) affects both boys and girls older than age 10. However, AIS is more than 10 times more common in girls than in boys, with an overall ratio of 11:1.
